Graphically it's amazing, but gameplay is just awful, imo. Seems designed for the pre pubescent crowd.

I bought the game for my 8 year old son because he absolutely loves Starwars and I'm not going to make a political statement at his expense. That said, he got a lesson in loot crates and why we won't ever be purchasing them. He loves the game, but it looks like complete garbage to me.

They'll have to do something, because the estimated sales are under 1.1m physical units, and they were expecting to sell 13m copies. I doubt once we hear the next earnings call that they'll have sold more then 3m copies including digital which aren't counted.

LOL, from that link...

...many withheld their wallets, despite some media outlets still shilling for the game, the ESA coming to EA's aid, and some fanboys still trying to convince plebs that they should just ignore the loot boxes and have fun. Well, thankfully a majority of people didn't listen, but there was still 882,000 suckers out there who fell into the trap, willingly.

Good, serves them right. That "something" should logically be, "tone it down, Scrooge McDuck", but unfortunately, that's not how the brains of executives, shareholders, and marketing departments work.
Sure is, but keep in mind that shareholders expect returns for that investment. CEO's have been forced out less, and EA has shutdown studios for failing to sell just under the expected demand. This time, it's all on marketing and the CEO's vision on what they expected they could get away with. I wouldn't be surprised if in the next year or so that we hear the "CEO is moving on to new things."

Yeah, they'll just have to get more clever with their greed.

Corporations don't look at it that way. They needlessly lost several hundred million dollars through greed and that pisses shareholders off. It makes a difference.
